Richard Davis, blacksmith artist

Richard Davis, a blacksmith artist from Kirkby Stephen at work.

Richard makes locally inspired artworks from mild steel, all with a subtle art nouveau influence. He does all his work on his home-made forge (which has a hair dryer as a bellows!).

At the moment, his works can be bought from the Old School gallery in Muker, or possibly down the pub if you happen to meet him there, where he usually takes one or two pieces to sell, which is possibly a sales tactic I should try myself!
